[THE INVESTOR] LG Electronics said on Aug. 28 it will showcase two new editions of the LG G7 smartphone and a new premium bottom-freezer refrigerator that boasts improved energy efficiency at the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin, which kicks off this week.
The Korean tech giant said it will showcase the LG G7 One and the LG G7 Fit at the tech exhibition. The two products will be based on the LG G7 ThinQ released in May.
The LG G7 One will operate under the Android One system, which comes with fewer preinstalled applications and supports monthly security updates.
The smartphone will have a 16-megapixel main lens, along with an 8-megapixel selfie camera and be competitively priced. The G7 ThinQ came with two 16-megapixel cameras on the back.
The company said the two new devices support what it calls a super-bright display, allowing users to look at their screens clearly even outdoors. They also maintain key features of the G7 ThinQ, such as the DTS:X technology that provides users with vibrant realistic sound.
LG said its new bottom-freezer refrigerator branded Centum System, which is applied on its high-performance and energy-efficient home appliances, will also be introduced.
The new 384-liter refrigerator boasts 40 percent higher energy efficiency compared to the A+++ standard granted in Europe. It will offer a 20-year warranty for the new product, claiming the length is sufficient considering consumers normally use refrigerators for around 10 years.
LG added that the bottom-freezer refrigerator comes with the company‘s inverter linear compressor, which helps in saving energy and reducing noise. It will be released in major European countries, including Spain, Italy, and Germany, after the showcase at the IFA.
